*Serious music business was conducted at the 20th annual “Uplifting Minds II” (ULMII) Entertainment Conference held recently at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
R&B singers Brittny Terry and Ty Brown, and Country Christian singer/songwriter Charlene Howell walked away with over $15,000 valued in products and services that they can take advantage of.
The panelists – Dr. Edna Sims, Melody Trice, Dr, Lee Bailey, Dr. Dina Andrews and Attorney Richard Jefferson – gave advice and information that was priceless. Many panelist, artists and audience members stayed hours after the conference still networking, inspiring and being encouraged.
Presented in part by DBS Sound and Light, the competition was co-hosted by DJ Occult and ULMII founder Syndicated Columnist Eunice Moseley (www.ThePulseofEntertainment.com) . The conference opened by giving the audience a chance to ask questions of the panel, which consisted of public relations specialist Dr. Edna Sims (www.ESPPR.net); television personality Melody Trice (www.MelodyTrice.com); entertainment magazine publisher Dr, Lee Bailey (www.EURweb.com); artist manager Dr. Dina Andrews (www.KnewBeginningsEntertainment.com). and Entertainment Attorney Richard B. Jefferson (www.LawyersRock.com). All of the panelists gave information that was priceless. While the competitors got in place, a showcase of acts entertained the crowd. The showcase acts consisted of Baltimore “ULMII” Dance winners R.I.C.O.C.H.E.T. , Latin Rapper Innocent Mind, Brazilian Jazz/R&B vocalist Elias Gomez Taylor, and Percussionist Chillie Willie Groove and his band of living legends. The competition displayed some impressive talent with the panel selecting R&B vocalist Brittny Terry of Stockton, CA as the “Best Vocalist,” Country Christian singer/songwriter Charlene Howell of Riverside, CA as the “Best Songwriter” and R&B singer/songwriter Ty Brown of El Monte, CA as the “Runner-Up Vocalist.”
“Uplifting Minds II” was founded in 1999 by Eunice Moseley (Freelance Associates, PRSA) while Promotions Director at The Baltimore Times and is held annually in Baltimore and Los Angeles. With a history hosting community events, Moseley wanted to give young artists a reason throughout the year to practice and hone their artistic talents as vocalists, songwriters, dancers and actors, and provide professional advice and a stage to showcase and practice that talent on.
